COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Marcus Lattimore says he'll be ready to play NFL football this fall.

The former South Carolina star tailback has spent the past two months in Pensacola, Fla., rehabbing his right knee which he shredded on Oct. 27 against Tennessee. Lattimore sustained a dislocation and tore several ligaments in the gruesome injury.

Yet, with each weight he lifts and every time he jogs in the pool, Lattimore knows he's getting closer to returning to the football field.

Lattimore had surgery in November. He declared for the NFL draft in December instead of rehabilitating and possibly playing one final season for the Gamecocks.

Lattimore says famed surgeon James Andrews, part of the team who performed the operation, has told him several times he's going to shock the world with his complete comeback.
